    Blackfish report Clinton 10/08

    It was such a beautiful day out on the water today! Could be one of the last of this type until next year.
    Maggie and I went out to fish the last hour of incoming and the 1 hour of the outgoing.
    •Where = Fished a local area.
    •Tide = last hour incoming, 1st hour outgoing
    •Water temp = 63.7 f
    •Depth = 8' - 12'
    •Bait = Asian and green crabs

    We anchored up in tight to the rocks and on the first drop, an asian crab was history and first fish in the box.
    We caught 4 between 15" and 17.5" in the first half hour.
    Nothing big but good dinner size.
    When the tide slacked the bite died.
    Waited for the outgoing to start up and when it did we only got a couple taps.

    All in all, a fine couple hours on the water with great weather and company.
    When we got back to the dock our daughter and two grandsons were there waiting for us.
    The two and four year olds were just plenty of help cleaning up boat, dock and fish LOL.
    Great day!!!!

    WOW, there are some big togs off Branford. It's inconsistent, you have to hunt, but when you find them they're BIG---as in 9 lbs. Not one right after the other, you might not even get a limit, but what nice fish!
    All fishermen lie, except you and me, and sometimes I'm not sure about you.

    With the water cooling down some, we're hoping it'll be really picking up shortly. Haven't got one over 6 lbs this year yet.
